We are hosting a pop-up gallery exhibition at Milagro Galeria Calle 25 No. 177 por 36 y 38 col. Buenavista. This group of artwork is a collection of works ranging over a number of years, including two large works on canvas, several medium-format works on paper, two linoleum prints, and a selection of drawings from one of my older sketchbooks. These works were originally stored in my Miami Storage and were brought out to be shipped to Mexico for this exhibition.
The works were selected by Curator Carolina Caceres from the works available in Miami, This will be the artist’s first exhibition in Mexico and the very first exhibition of the selected works from his sketchbooks. There is a special significance to the exhibition of preliminary works, many years ago, in the earliest stages of his carer, the artist did not keep all the drawings and preliminary works that lead to the creation of the large works on canvas. It was Carolina that saved those first drawings on visits to the studio that led the artist to consider these preliminary works in a different light, seeing them as works of art in their own right.
